Darwin
Darwin is 24 years old and single, but he has a three-year-old daughter. He lives alone in a small rustic house, which he built in the native community of Boca del Ipoki, in Chanchamayo.

He has been farming for five years. He grows coffee, plaintains, and avocados. Thanks to his parents and the community he was able to acquire eight plots of land. "I have twelve acres of coffee plants, but only two plots are being harvested," he mentions. He grows the avocados on half a plot, and the plaintains grow between the coffee plants. Sometimes, because of intense heat, the leaves of the coffee plants suffer burns or diseases, but thanks to the large leaves of the plaintains you can carefully maintain both crops. This year he obtained 25 sacks of coffee beans from his crops, last year it was 20, and next year he is expecting to obtain 30 to 35 sacks. Things are going very well and he ows it all to his effort. One of his goals is to formalize his family situation, which is why he plans on bringing his son and his partner to live with him.

This is his sixth loan with MFP, and he promises to make his monthly payments on time. He belongs to the communal bank Sol Naciente, a group of supportive and hard-working people.

He will invest the money from this loan in purchasing bags of fertilizer, which cost 125 nuevos soles each. He needs about fifteen sacks for his twelve acres of coffee plants.

Darwin tiene 24 años, es soltero, pero tiene una hija de tres años. Vive solo en una casita rústica que construyó en la comunidad nativa Boca del Ipoki, Chanchamayo.
Hace 5 años que se dedica a la agricultura con el cultivo de café, plátano y paltas. Gracias a sus padres y a la comunidad consiguió ocho parcelas de terrenos. “Tengo ocho cuadras plantadas de café, pero solo dos parcelas se está cosechando”, menciona. Las paltas las cultiva en media parcela y los plátanos que crecen entre el café. A veces por el intenso calor las hojas de café sufren quemaduras o enfermedades, pero gracias a las hojas grandes del platanal se puede mantener con cuidado estos cultivos. Este año obtuvo 25 sacos de café en la cosecha, el año pasado 20 y espera obtener para el próximo año como 30 o 35 sacos. Le va muy bien. Todo se lo debe a su esfuerzo. Entre sus metas están formalizar su familia, por eso piensa traer a su hijo y a su pareja a su hogar.

Este es su crédito número 6 con MFP y promete ser puntual en el pago de sus cuotas mensuales. Pertenece al banco comunal “Sol Naciente”, un grupo de personas solidarias y trabajadoras.
Invertirá el dinero de este préstamo en la compra de bolsas de fertilizantes cuyo precio es de 125 nuevos soles por saco; requiere como 15 sacos para sus 8 parcelas de café.
